-> File Handling
Paul, do you have the box "Always ask me before handling files of this type" in "Preferences..." --> "Navigator" --> "Helper applications" checked? If so, can you reproduce the problem with other file types? What version of Mac OS X are you running? Can you post a mac os x crash log?
I am using MacOS X 1.5. I did not have the box "Always ask...." when dealing with helper apps checked. I do not have a crash log. I do not have any version of Mozilla 1.5 on my hard drive anymore since 1.5 was very unstable and twice corrupted my user profile (fortunately I had a backup of the profile). Untile I find that the stability and safety (i.e.no profile corruption) of running Moz 1.5x on MacOS I will not load any version of Mozilla higher than Moz 1.4. I would like to investigate this bug further, but until the stability of Moz 1.5 improves, I don't want to go through the headaches required to "fix" my system after Moz 1.5x corrupts my Mozilla setup.
